By the Lake of Vanajavesi locates the Swimming Hall of City Hämeenlinna, built in 1976.
Year 2017 complete renovation project was finished. The renovation was designed by architect Petri Ilmarinen.
Dressing rooms and shower rooms were enlarged, surfaces were renewed, and new big pool was built.
The wall behind the diving platforms was made out of concrete. The architect wanted to pay attention to acoustics in the swimming hall, and Soften acoustic panels were specified to cover the whole wall behind the diving platforms. Wall panels soften the sound environment effectively and give the space a multidimensional appearance.
Soften Wall panels are manufactured of 100% polyester felt that is made out of recycled PET-bottles. Panels suit perfectly to spaces where the air humidity variates considerably.
